babble is rabble.ca's discussion board but it's much more than that: it's an online community for folks who just won't shut up. It's a place to tell each other — and the world — what's up with our work and campaigns.

http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1328275888/ On Monday, I was honored to receive the Leibowitz Prize for “life’s work”, the prize established by the Yesh Gvul soldiers' peace organization. I was unable to prepare a speech, so I spoke off the cuff and have to reconstruct my remarks from memory. (The laudation speech by the Nobel Prize laureate, Prof Ada Yonat, was far too laudatory for me to distribute.)

THERE SEEMS to be no limit to the troubles caused by the town of Hebron. This time, the reason is as innocent as can be: the organized visits of schoolchildren to the Cave of Machpelah, where our patriarchs are supposed to be buried. http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1328864396/

AFTER THE founding of Israel, God appeared to David Ben-Gurion and told him: “You have created a state for my chosen people in my holy land. This merits a great reward. Tell me what you wish, and I will grant it.” Ben-Gurion answered: “Almighty God, I wish that every person in Israel shall be wise, honest and a member of the Labor Party.” http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1329500681/

A PALESTINIAN village, somewhere in the West Bank. In the middle of the night, banging on the door and shouts in Arabic: “Israeli army. Open up!” Somebody – most often the mother - opens the door. The heavily armed soldiers rush in and drag the victim out of bed. They throw him to the floor in full view of his wife and children (or parents and siblings), blindfold and handcuff him behind his back, and drag him to a jeep. The victim may be 15 or 70 years old or any age in between. http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1330038478/

IF I were to follow the call of my heart, I would appeal to our government to send the Israeli army into Syria, drive the Assad gang from Damascus, turn the country over to the Syrian opposition or the UN, and go home. That wouldn’t even be very difficult. http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1330723834/

ON THE face of it, it was a trivial incident. In the presence of the entire political and legal establishment, the liberal President of the Supreme Court, Dorit Beinisch, who has reached the age limit of 70, was replaced by the conservative Justice Asher Dan Grunis. At the end of the ceremony, the national anthem was sung. The camera panned from face to face. For a moment, it framed the face of Justice Salim Jubran. He was standing respectfully, like everybody else, but his lips were not moving. http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1331314324/

“What have you learned in school today, my son?” “There was no school today. There is an emergency!” “And what have you learned from that, my son?” ACTUALLY, QUITE a lot. This week’s “round”, as the army likes to call it, followed a well-established pattern, as formal as a religious ritual. It started with the assassination (or “targeted elimination”) of a hitherto unknown Palestinian resistance (“terrorist”) leader in the Gaza Strip. http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1331863465/

RACIST HATE crimes are particularly ugly. If the victims are children, they are even more so. If they are committed by an Arab against Jewish children, they are also incredibly stupid. This was demonstrated this week again. WHEN AN Arab al-Qaeda sympathizer is guilty of shooting three Jewish children and an adult in Toulouse, after killing three non-white French soldiers nearby, he caused not only extreme grief to their families, but also extreme harm to the Palestinian people, whose cause he claims to support. The world-wide shock found its expression in a demonstration of solidarity with the French Jewish community, and indirectly with the State of Israel. http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1332502252/

http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1333109556/ MARWAN BARGHOUTI has spoken up. After a long silence, he has sent a message from prison. In Israeli ears, this message does not sound pleasant. But for Palestinians, and for Arabs in general, it makes sense.

I AM writing this on Friday night, the eve of Passover. At this moment, all over the world, millions of Jews are gathered around the family table, observing the Seder, reading aloud from the same book: the Haggadah, which tells the story of the Exodus from Egypt. The impact of this book on Jewish life is immense. Every Jew takes part in this ceremony from earliest childhood and plays an active part in the ritual. Wherever a Jewish man or woman goes in later life, they will take with them a memory of the warmth and togetherness of the family, the magical atmosphere – and the overt and subliminal message conveyed by the text. http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1333743257/

STOP ME if I have told you this joke before: Somewhere in the US, a demonstration takes place. The police arrive and beat the protesters mercilessly. “Don’t hit me,” someone shouts, “I am an anti-communist!” “I couldn't give a damn what kind of a communist you are!” a policeman answers as he raises his baton. THE FIRST time I told this joke was when a German group visited the Knesset and met with German-born members, including me. http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1334242715/

“In blood and sweat / A race will arise to us / Proud and generous and brutal…” Thus wrote Vladimir (Ze’ev) Jabotinsky, the founder of extreme right-wing Zionism, who was also a writer and a poet. Present-day Likud leaders see him as their forefather, much as Stalin saw Karl Marx. http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1334917543/

I AM an Optimist. Period. No ifs. No buts. No perhapses. Maybe it’s genetic. My father was an optimist. Even when, at the age of 45, he had to flee his native Germany to a primitive little country in the Middle East, his spirits remained high. Though he had to adapt to a new country, a hot climate, hard physical labor and grinding poverty, he was happy. At least he had saved his wife and four children, the youngest of whom was I. http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1335523474/
